Carlisle's Viceroy placed second best in the 'Oscars of the Curry World'

An Indian restaurant in Carlisle has beat thousands of rivals to be named as the second best in the north west in this year’s British Curry Awards in London.

The Viceroy, in Rigg Street, Shaddongate is run by Mr Ali, 59, who has had his restaurant in Carlisle for the last 34 years.

Last year’s awards were supported by Prime Minister David Cameron, who gave his personal backing to the task of promoting new talent in the curry restaurant business.
